Pic: Diego Sanchez Huge Eye Cut From Gilbert Melendez Elbow At UFC 166

Diego_sanchez_medium

Not even a small Gilbert Melendez-made window over the left eye of Diego Sanchez could keep "The Dream" from pushing a furious pace tonight at UFC 166, which takes place from Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The gash was suffered early in the first round and was checked by the referee in the second and third. And, in the final frame, Sanchez went completely berserk. Perhaps it was the smell (and taste) of his own blood ... or maybe he knew he had to score a finish to win ... or both. Amazing performance once again and an even more incredible fight.

Pic: Former Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez looks to be in fantastic shape prior to his world title fight against 155-pound kingpin Ben Henderson in the UFC on FOX 7 main event, which tops off a loaded free fight card from the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., on April 20, 2013. Think the extra bulk will benefit "El Nino" on fight night or is he over-matched regardless? Photo via Facebook.com.

UFC heavyweight and coach of this upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Roy Nelson just tweeted a photo of himself after a swim practice with Nick Diaz, Nate Diaz and Gilbert Melendez. Says Nelson, "Now I'm ready for my first triathlon." If there was any doubt that the Cesar Gracie team would be participating with Nelson to help coach this upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, I think this picture puts that to rest. By the way, judging from the photo, how crazy is it that the Diaz brothers fight in different weight classes?

Coalition Fight Music (CFM) has reportedly come to an agreement with the Cesar Gracie team to provide custom walkout music for fighters from the gym, starting with Nick Diaz for his upcoming title shot against Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 137 on Oct. 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Other notable fighters out of the Gracie camp are Jake Shields, Gilbert Melendez and Nate Diaz. Will this quickly become a growing trend in MMA sponsorship is it this just a flash in the pan? Time will tell. Props: MMA Weekly
